Lovechock is lovingly made by hand from the best organic, raw cacao from Ecuador. Instead of being roasted, the beans are cold ground. That’s why Lovechock is a natural source of flavonoids and ‘Lovechemicals’: goodies that make you feel happy and loving.

In the regular chocolate production process, the cacao beans are roasted and ground at very high temperatures whereby much of the cacao’s beneficial qualities are destroyed. But raw chocolate is different: The raw cacao beans are not roasted but cold ground, many of the beautiful cacao substances remain intact, namely antioxidants (flavonoids) and “love chemicals”.
In the Lovechock process, from the cacao bean through to the end product, the temperature is kept below 49ºC. Respect for the natural ingredients and passion for chocolate assure the high quality of Lovechock.
Lovechock uses only the best, natural and organic ingredients. After a long search our choice fell upon the Arriba Nacionale, which is a superior cacao bean from Ecuador. A ‘cacao fino de aroma’, that is to say a speciality cacao. Speciality cacao makes up only 4% of the total world cacao trade, the rest is bulk cacao. Arriba Nacionale is a rare cacao sort which requires careful and dedicated cultivation.
The Arriba Nacionale has a full and intense flavour with tones of exotic fruits and spicy, flowery accents.
The cacao Lovechock uses is organically grown on a small scale by small farmers who also often cultivate other fruits. This assures a high biodiversity. Organic quality is particularly important for chocolate. Cacao grows in a tropical climate and normally cacao trees are sprayed with lots of pesticides. Lovechock uses cacao which has not been sprayed with pesticides (SKAL025561).
Lovechock buys her chocolate directly at the cacaocorperation.
